    Special Schedules
    If your child needs to miss any portion of their camp session, please notify the main office of your schedule as soon as possible. Notifying your child’s counselor of early pick up times will not ensure your child will be ready when you arrive; please call the main office at (425) 746-9110. Campers that miss a portion of the camp program will not be able to make up missed activities. Should you schedule a pick up for your child in the middle of an activity, they may need to miss the entire activity. In fairness to other campers, boats will not be brought back before the scheduled end time of each activity block. Please check with our office manager concerning the best time to pick up your child if they must leave early.

    Friday Pick Up
    The Overnight Camp ends and campers must be picked up by 5:00 PM. Early pick-up is available provided advance arrangements are made. If you need to pick up your camper early, please call the main office (425) 746-9110 no later than 10:00 AM on Friday morning.
